Vocal / Choral Director: Christine Tavares-Mocha
Welcome to the Valencia High School Choir family! My name is Christine Tavares-Mocha and I am the choral director at Valencia High School. We are very happy to have you and your child involved in the choir. This year promises to be exciting and rewarding! Many benefits will come from the experience that your child will obtain from being in choir. We are currently planning our festivals and tours for the 2020-2021 school year. In the past we have toured Greece & Italy including singing in St. Peter's Basilica, New York including performing at Carnegie Hall, Paris, Munich, Austria, and Vienna singing throughout Europe.
The choral music program offers something for everyone! Music is one of the “multiple intelligences” that contributes to the development of each person.

More importantly, music is an outlet for enjoyment, creativity, and growing! It is my hope that when students look back at their time in the Valencia High School Choirs, they will realize that it wasn’t just about making music; It was about making and enriching one’s life. Y

I am excited and look forward to working with you and your child. I hope many of you become involved in our “Choral Parents Association” (CPA).
